If you’ve ever been to Miami, or turned on a television, you know the city has a style all of its own. One look at the pretty pastels and art deco facades, and you feel instantly transported to another time. A time of effortless beach-y glamor and crisp white suits and Don Johnson in a sexy red corvette… wait, what?

Pastels are reminiscent of lazy days spent strolling past the beautiful architecture. And the all-white look, which is always in vogue, makes me want to sail along the coast. Or at least spend then day sipping cocktails by the water. Whatever you fancy, these colors set the tone.
